Doctoral Candidate and Teaching Fellow, Queen's University, Ontario

Emily LeDuc is a Doctoral Candidate and Teaching Fellow in the History Department at Queen's University. There, her research and courses taught focus on cultural histories, and in particular, expressions of cultural nationalism in 20th century North America. Emily is especially interested in the perceived homogeneity of culture between Canada and the United States and the subsequent impact on cultural producers and consumers north of the 49th parallel. Her dissertation uses television as a medium for exploring the impact of American mass media industries on Canadian culture and identity after 1945. Emily is a recipient of a Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship through the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and an Ontario Graduate Scholarship through the Government of Ontario.
